During September AMS Robotics started a brand new ‘Rent A Robot’ promotion, specifically targeting grassroot football clubs across the UK. The offer allows football clubs with limited funds to access the benefits robotic mowing provides by renting one of our refurbished BigMow Classic robot mowers.
Designed for smaller clubs that may not have their pitch cut as often as they need, or are reliant on the volunteers. This promotion gives the club the frequent mowing they desire, at a price that’s affordable and the promise that their pitch will be cut at the very minimum 3 times a week, ensuring it looks game ready at all times.
Bacup Borough Football Club was one of the first to enquire and within a few weeks, their Big Mow Classic was installed, up and running. Brent Peters, the club manager at Bacup FC is delighted with how the system is working for the club so far, here’s what he had to say about it:
“Within my position at the Football Club, whilst my primary position is that of the First Team Manager, I have to cover the majority of other responsibilities that come with being the front line operator of a Non League Football Club, to this end time is critical, previously I was using a walk-behind mower which as you can imagine did take several hours out of my day, time that could be better spent within other aspects, previously to the walk-behind I had a ride on, even this did take up quite a bit of time, so when I was introduced to the big mow, seeing it in action, this investment was a no brainer for me, the fact that I can programme the Big Mow to go out and cut, the fact that it is all self-sustainable whereby I can leave it and it gets on with the job is absolutely brilliant.
The other saving grace for me is the fact I could not really organise my diary because I had to work with the weather forecast, if the forecast said it had to rain hard from 10 am, I had to be on the pitch at 6 am in order to get the pitch cut before the rain did come, with the Big Mow, it just keeps on top of the job despite the fact it could be raining, when the pitch gets too wet, it is a walk over to the Big Mow, programme to go and stay at base, then that action is done. The Big Mow is an impressive piece of kit that does a remarkable job.
